Kaundinya (Skt. Kauṇḍinya; Pal. Kondanna; Tib. ཀུན་ཤེས་ཀཽཎ་ཌི་ཉ་, Wyl. kun shes kauN Di nya) — one of Buddha Shakyamuni's ascetic companions before he attained enlightenment, and who later became the recipients of the first teaching the Buddha ever gave, on the Four Truths of the Noble Ones. Kaundinya's understanding was sublime and he was the first ever to attain the state of arhat.
